Wild Rover

1 I’ve been a wild rover for many’ the year
And I’ve spent all me money on whiskey and beer.
And now I’m returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more
And it’s No Nay Never,
No Nay Never No more
Will I play the wild rover
No Never No more.
2 I went to an alehouse I used to frequent,
And I told the l andlady my money was spent.
I asked her for credit she answered me  » Nay,
Such custom as yours I could have every day « .
3 I brought up from my pockets ten sovereings bright
And the landlady ‘s eyes opened wide with delight.
She said  » I have whiskeys and wines of the best,
And the words that I told you were only in jest « .
4 I’ll go home to my parents, confess what I’ve done,
And I’ll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.
And when they’ve caressed me as oft times before,
I never will play the wild rover no more.
